Ghosts of Ascalon had some wonderful characters and interesting plotlines. It was a good primer on the lore of Guild Wars 2, and I admit I cried at parts. I did, however, feel it dragged on a bit long, though it might have been my own expectations for what the book would be. I expected the central plot to be happening in Ascalon, whereas it’s actually more about the journey – and facing more figurative Ghosts of Ascalon. Well written and engaging.
